Kane County Hospital (KCH) is a 25 bed Critical Access Hospital (CAH) located in Kanab, UT. KCH is a Special Service District within Kane County governed by an elected Board of Trustees.
Eighty-seven years ago, Dr. George Aiken opened the first hospital in Kanab, bringing much needed healthcare to the rural community. But much has changed. Today, KCH's patients come from an area that covers over 4,000 square miles, from the north rim of the Grand Canyon to Page, Arizona, and from the cities of Orderville, Glendale and Alton in the north, to Fredonia to the south in Arizona and to Mojave County, Arizona, to the Southwest, including the Kaibab Indian Reservation and the communities of Moccasin, Kaibab, Colorado City, Centennial Park, and Cane Beds. In addition, 3,000,000 visitors to southern Utah depend on KCH for emergency services.
KCH provides OB, acute inpatient, swingbed and long term care. KCH has one surgery suite, an inpatient and outpatient laboratory, radiology department with ultrasound, x-ray, and CT. A mobile MRI visits once a week and a mammography unit every other month. KCH provides behavioral health critical care, neonatal critical care, and stoke care through ...telehealth. In September 2021 KCH went live with hospitalist and intensive critical care through telehealth. The emergency room had 3,086 visits in 2020 and the ambulances made 606 runs.
In 2020 KCH completed the addition of a new Emergency Department, Radiology suite, PACU and the remodel of the main and acute care waiting areas, business office, laboratory, and long term care wing.
